No Cost Project Safe Neighborhoods Training
4th Annual Gangs, Drugs, and Prosecution Conference
Belen, New Mexico

The conference will include cross-training with prosecutors, agents, and officers involved drug trafficking and gang-related cases. The main focus will be on how to conduct a successful investigation and prosecution of these types of crimes. “

Organized crime and drug trafficking organizations routinely use vehicles equipped with large natural voids and aftermarket constructed hidden compartments. These compartments are used to traffic guns, drugs, bulk U.S. Currency, and explosive devices. The IACP's Project Safe Neighborhoods is sponsoring a Detecting Hidden Compartments course. This training will assist law enforcement, specifically the officer on patrol, with conducting vehicle searches. There will be an overview of the search sequence, tools needed, accessing the compartments, and safety concerns. The ability to detect these hidden compartments will greatly increase the success of law enforcement and its ability to combat the criminal element traveling our highways.
